Weapons trade permit application

Service Description

To trade in firearms and ammunition on a commercial basis or independently as part of a business venture, you require a firearms trading permit.

This must be applied for at the firearms authority responsible for the place of business. It can be limited to certain types of firearms and ammunition. Weapons trading may also include lending, auctioning, renting, pledging, safekeeping or transporting.

The permit is issued only for a natural person (sole proprietorship). In the case of legal entities, the responsible managing director or the individual personally liable partners each require a permit.

If the arms trade is to be operated by a deputy or if a person is to be entrusted with the management of a branch or a dependent branch, then a deputy permit must be applied for.

The permit expires if the activity has not been started within one year of the permit being granted or has not been carried out for one year. The time limits may be extended for special reasons.
